I don't see it as a bug. If you subclass Document your subclass is
responsible for managing some of Document's internals. We
*intentionally* don't do any work in the protected constructor because
some subclasses may not want to waste time constructing a list that may
not be used. In other words, only a subclass that knows what it's doing
should call new Document().
